Scarlett Johansson isn’t embarrassed that nude pictures of her were hacked and made public. As far as the 26-year-old actress is concerned, there’s nothing wrong with a lady sending naughty photos to her husband — which she says was the case here. In fact, ScarJo spills all on the photo scandal that rocked the Interwebs and her divorce on the pages of the December issue of Vanity Fair.
“I know my best angles. They were sent to my husband. There’s nothing wrong with that,” she jokes.
Christopher Chaney is the man accused of stealing X-rated photos from Scarlett’s online account. He also hacked into the private emails of stars like Christina Aguilera, Mila Kunis Vanessa Hudgens, and nearly 50 other celebrities. According to an indictment, Chaney hacked Google, Apple and Yahoo email accounts between Nov. 2010 and Feb. 2011, then hijacked the forwarding feature so that a copy of every email received was sent “virtually instantaneously” to an email account he controlled. Raunchy personal photos of Johansson, Aguilera, and Kunis are believed to have been “harvested” from the intercepted emails.
Chaney was arrested at his Florida home last month and faces up to 121 years in jail if found guilty of 26 counts of identity theft, unauthorized access to a protected computer, and wiretapping. The 35-year-old claims he was “addicted” to spying on celebrities and “didn’t know how to stop.”
Scarlett, of course, has since divorced the recipient of the photos, Ryan Reynolds, and she also addresses the split with Vanity Fair.
“I didn’t really know what to do with myself,” she says of the divorce. “It was such a strange time. There was nothing that was interesting to me. I had a very public separation. It was difficult. I felt very uncomfortable.”
As for her career, Scarlett hints she may eventually be done with Hollywood — at least in front of the camera:
“I would like to direct. I’d be happy to work behind the camera, forever.”
